An article in "The Age"
newspaper today reveals that, despite funding The Parliament of the World's Religions Convention to the tune of $2.5million, the Rudd and Brumby government have refused to provide one-tenth of that amount to help the Global Atheist Convention
promote their event.
This appears to be a case of blatant discrimination against non-theists by these governments.
If you are as outraged as I am, may I suggest that you write a letter to the editor of The Age. Letters can be submitted online here
You might also consider sending an email to John Brumby here.
. By all means be firm, but please be polite!
If you have any contacts within the Labor Party, please let them know that we will circulate this decision as widely as possible and that it will cost the party votes.
If you have a blog or website, please let people know about this.
Hopefully, the state and federal governments will see sense and overturn this blatantly discriminatory decision.
